Prayers of the Faithful for November 18 & 19, 2017
We now make our needs known to God who has entrusted to us the saving work of Jesus.
That all members of the church be aware of the gifts of faith, time and opportunity that God has entrusted to us, we pray:
That God will inspire us with new visions of how to use our gifts and meet the greatest needs of the world around us, we pray:
That God will free us from fear and help us to live life to the fullest, we pray:
That those who lack the basic necessities of life receive what they need from those who have been given an abundance, we pray:
That those traveling this week for the Thanksgiving holiday have safe journeys, and are renewed by spending time with family and friends, we pray:
That those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including: Debbie Adams and James Jarrard. May they find comfort in the healing touch of God and by the loving care of family and friends, we pray:
That those who have died, especially Richard Sexton the husband of Joan Carroll, be forever held in the loving arms of God, and for all whose names have been inscribed in our Book of the Dead, and for those grieving the passing of a loved-one, we pray:
Generous God, you are the giver of all that we have. Give us the vision, courage, and strength to use our gifts to benefit others. We ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
